Common causes of hip bursitis

Hip bursitis and tendinitis is an extremely common cause of musculoskeletal pain and disability, which can become chronic. Hip bursitis is commonly caused from a combination of overuse, poor hip mobility/strength, altered biomechanics and trauma. This often leads to significant localised pain, poor function and on going disability. Most cases of hip pain and bursitis are caused by a combination of overuse, repetition and injury. Severity can vary. Often bursitis and gluteal tendinitis can be linked.


Symptoms of hip bursitis

  • Lateral hip pain

  • Pain and walking and climbing stairs

  • Difficulty putting pressure on the effected side

  • Stiffness

  • Hip tightness

  • Referral pain

There are many different treatment options that can provide assistance and treat hip pain and bursitis. It is the aim to reduce pain and inflammation at the same time of working on the predisposing factors that may be contributing towards to the issue. Treatments may include:



  • Osteopathy/manipulation (manual therapy)

  • Physiotherapy (physical therapy)

  • Rehabilitation

Hip bursitis and tendinitis can be triggered by many different reasons. Ultimately, we want to reduce pain, improve function and prevent further long term damage. At the Dynamic Clinic, lateral hip pain and bursitis is an extremely common issue we see and treat every day. We always stress the importance of treating hip bursitis early, to treat and prevent the likelihood of chronic damage to the local soft tissues. When hip bursitis becomes chronic it can often be related to damage to the gluteal tendons which can be more challenging to treat. That being said, we treat all cases of hip bursitis, most of which are dealt with successfully.


In the initial stages we like to enforce conservative treatment and management of hip pain and tendinitis. But in many cases, extra resources may be encouraged. The Dynamic Clinic have a very good reputation in the treatment and delivery of high quality regenerative treatments for hip bursitis and tendinitis. The most popular by far being P-PRP injection treatment, in which patients travel from all different regions of the UK to see us for advice and treatment (further information can be found on the ORTHOBIOLOGICS link below). If patients are showing signs of advanced injury or disease then we may discuss the option for scans to get diagnostic clarity of what it is that may be causing the issue and the severity. 

If a cause of your hip pain is suspected to be of an inflammatory or rheumatological origin, then you will be asked to provide a blood test and lab panel to check for raised inflammatory markers - ESR, CRP and TNFa, and maybe immunological makers.

Referral for Specialist Imaging or Private MRI Scans

At the Dynamic Clinic we can provide ultrasound imaging for hip bursitis and tendinitis to look for signs of tissue damage and inflammation. It is unlikely, but, in uncommon cases a more in-depth analysis may be required. If a private MRI scan is considered, we will put in a local referral to our Imaging Centre in Solihull. You will then be booked in within 5-10 days. Following your scan, the report will be completed by our colleaguesThis report will then come back to the Dynamic Clinic and will we then discuss with you then best course of treatment for your compliant. 

In cases where the disease progression is too severe, or the problem is not getting better, then we may refer to our trusted colleagues for surgical opinion. 

Hip Bursitis or Tendinitis Assessment

To assist with your hip pain, we firstly need to provide a functional assessment of the area. If you have been having lateral hip pain for some time which does not appear to be improving or is impacting on your daily activities then it is recommended to see a musculoskeletal professional. This experienced clinician will be able to provide an assessment, gain information to make a diagnosis and provide the best treatment and management strategies to resolve your pain and get you back to best function again. At the Dynamic Clinic, lateral hip pain and bursitis is an extremely common complaint we see and treat. Our experienced musculoskeletal clinician, Mr Adam Whatley will be able to provide assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of hip pain conditions from sport injuries to occupational trauma.

Sometimes hip injuries to soft tissue can turn into chronic pain, this especially common with hip bursitis and gluteal tendinitis. In these cases, sometimes the body needs a push to aid healing and repair. Injection therapy for lateral hip pain, injury and bursitis can also be commonly used to treat stubborn cases and can deliver great success in many cases. There are many different forms of injection therapies but the most common are steroid injections, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections and hyaluronic acid.

Steroid (cortisone) Injection Treatment for Hip Bursitis

Individuals who have been complaining of lateral hip pain who have not responded effectively to standard treatment and management may be advised to consider a cortisone injection to reduce pain and inflammation. However, it is very important to understand that steroid injections (if successful) are often only short-lived and may have an overall degenerative effect on the local tissue if repeated. Although they can be good for inflammation, cortisone injections are not routinely used for on going pain management due to weakening of tissue. This can put tendons at an increased risk for rupture (tear), if repeated too often.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Treatment for Hip Bursitis

Hugely popular, PRP treatment is a safe natural treatment commonly used in many different cases of musculoskeletal pain and injury, that uses platelets from the patient’s blood to promote and facilitate healing and repair in damaged tissue. Increased scientific literature from evidence-based clinical trials are increasingly showing how PRP injection treatment is safe and effective for the treatment of hip bursitis and hip gluteal tendinitis, also showing improved benefits over cortisone, particularly for long term progress.


During your consultation, this gives us the opportunity to discuss your arising hip complaint and then to discuss possible treatment options and expectations. Below is a simple consultation flow:


  1. discuss your condition

  2. what treatment you have had so far

  3. clinical assessment (where applicable) - having a look at the area and examining

  4. ultrasound scanning (where applicable)

  5. diagnosis (refer for further investigations if necessary)

  6. treatment options

  7. treatment plan

Please note that treatment can indeed follow on from consultation if happy to do so and enough time has been set aside to do so.
